Take on the challenging Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail

Wallsend, Tyne and Wear

Follow in the footsteps of an Emperor along the Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail.

Built to mark the northwest limit of the Roman Empire, Hadrian's Wall was a massive feat of engineering, traversing rolling countryside, crossing rivers and hugging formidable crags. Now, thousands of long distance walkers experience this amazing frontier for themselves and take on a personal challenge.

Travelling through changing landscapes and the amazing scenery of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the National Trail follows the route of Hadrian's Wall over 84 miles between Bowness on Solway and Wallsend. Allow plenty of time to enjoy the views and imagine this now peaceful area under Roman control, lots of great museums and attractions along the way will help to bring the story back to life.

Collect stamps for the Summer Passport (May - October) from locations along the trail for a unique keepsake from a very special long distance walk.
